Zac's career started in 1993 after returning from Seattle where he’d been working for Greenpeace. He began by using art as a form of therapy after his father died and quickly realised that his métier was to be an artist. With no formal training, Zac spent two years building a portfolio of artworks which subsequently led to his first commission – designing and manufacturing window displays for one of Britain's leading clothes retailer, Jigsaw. Similar commissions rapidly followed from other industry leaders, such as Monsoon, Viyella and Topshop to name but a few.
He then worked with some of London's leading advertising agencies, exploring how brands such as BMW, Jaguar, Sony and Speedo could use art installations and sculpture to develop and enhance their brands. One notable commission came from Good Energy, where Zac innovatively illuminated Britain's first wind farm – winning the 2006 Green Award for 'Best Outdoor Advertisement'.
Next, Zac set his sights on the Fine Art world where he has been ever since, widely exhibiting his highly coveted works in galleries in London and the USA. His work recently won first prize in the T4C award in Los Angeles, and more locally was 'Highly Commended' in The Bath Prize. His work features in both private and corporate collections at home and abroad; he is regularly commissioned by well-known art consultants, architects and interior designers to create site-specific works often to a brief, or to fulfil a particular need for a client. He also undertakes many private assignments and was recently commissioned by the Saudi Royal Family.
